A Common Sense Approach to the Bible "Bringing Heaven down to earth one rung at a time."
Check List for your Heart
Forgiveness. If you cannot first forgive yourself, then you cannot truly forgive others (Do not just forgive but forget).
Trust God. It is a relational building process as you grow (which will take time) to understand God "one rung at a time" walking through your life and circumstances. Everyone's is different.
Respect the process of God. After accepting Christ, life is not what you are doing through God; it is what He is trying to accomplish through you so your purpose can be realized. Remember: He is God, and you are not. Step down off the throne.
Learn to love yourself. If you do not love yourself, then why do you think that others will love you? Being downtrodden within your own mind can cause defeatism in your life facets, which trickles down to those around you, especially children.
"Clean hands" before God. If you have ought against any man, go to the source and tell him/her and repent of it. Your heart before the Lord needs a daily cleansing.
Attitude is crucial.
Words you speak. The enemy will use your own words against you.
Do not point fingers.
Do not ever run from confrontation. Put your big pants on and face it. If God is with you, you have nothing to fear.
Have "bulldog" faith. Grab God with your teeth and never let go.
Stop focusing on others, what they have, what they are doing, and where they are going, and stay focused on yourself and what God is trying to do through you. Angst will stop.
Thank God continually.
